* GoodOldWays: General Tanaka is sure that guns pose no real danger to his army because of the long time they need to reload, which he's sure will allow his men to get close enough to cut down the riflemen. He's overlooking the strategic ways they could be used, such as by targeting enemy commanders, and creating a DecapitatedArmy, as Eijiro appears to be planning.

Boy did Tanaka come to regret that.

* MasterSwordsman: Any number of them. Genchu used to be top dog with Hirotomo on almost the same level, but the wounds the two gave each in their duel may mean that neither is in the top tier anymore. (Genchu's arm wound in particular appears to be a CareerEndingInjury, and his encounter with Nataku shows that he's not as good as he used to be.) Tadashi may be the top active swordsman at the moment. Yori, who's had the benefit of training under both Genchu and Tadashi, (and who Tadashi mentioned had showed great potential) is a rung or two down from the top level but he does pretty well for himself.

Tadashi may be is quite a skilled and superhumanly fast fighter, particularly in his skill as an IaijutsuPractitioner. [[spoiler:And that's despite the top active swordsman at the moment. fact that he fights with a broken sword.]]

Yori, who's had the benefit of training under both Genchu and Tadashi, (and who Tadashi mentioned had showed great potential) is a rung or two down from the top level but he does pretty well has enormous potential despite his naiveté, especially since Matrix got him to realize that he's better suited for himself.DualWielding than in using only his katana.

'''Yori:''' Sorry, [[CombatPragmatist [[KnowWhenToFoldEm too busy rescuing you]].



* '''Cho Teko''', a blind Taoist priest. Comes off as a CloudCuckooLander due to endlessly spouting [[IceCreamKoan Ice Cream Koans]]. An absolute master of kung fu despite both his blindness and general obliviousness. Has several running gags, including one about misreading the gender of any new character who he meets, and another about how the world will end after a blind Taoist, a Hindu, and a cleric walk into a bar together.
* '''Kenta Daisuke''' or Ken, the guy with the huge sword. Enjoys sake, Kabuki plays, and beating people up for money, or just for laughs. TheBigGuy who's motivated by revenge for his clan, which used to be a rival to the Wataro clan but got massacred by Yori's father when Ken was a child.

Of the above, only Ina can't hold her own in combat, although she's proved herself to be an excellent strategist. Which is a good thing for the group, because they need all the help they can get as they try to prevent a war and survive clashing with a squad of powerful assassins. Not to mention the ninja mercenaries, kung fu priests, genocidal warlords, gun toting armies, a prophecy about the end of the world, and worst of all, dynastic politics.

* ManipulativeBastard: Not only did Hirotomo plan to have Masuhiro assassinated right after Yori and Ina's marriage so Yori would inherit control of the Senshin clan, but there are subtle hints that [[spoiler:he wants Yori to defeat the Demons of Sorrow, presumably to toughen Yori up and turn him into a more suitable heir. See [[http://nn4b.com/comic/110 here]] and [[http://nn4b.com/comic/657 here]], and put that together with [[http://nn4b.com/comic/174 Tadashi's statement]] that Hirotomo specifically ordered the Demons of Sorrow to attack Yori one at a time.]]

** Cho seems to be less than competent at guessing the gender of people he's never met. [[spoiler: The humorous nature of this is what makes his [[http://nn4b.com/?webcomic1=588 accurate assessment of Matrix's gender]] a shock which adds to the current MoodWhiplash. This may point to Cho ObfuscatingStupidity.]]
